In escrow! Tucked away on a hidden, quiet cul-de-sac near the historic Judson Studios, this Spanish home is a true peaceful oasis in the city. Originally built in 1922, 229 Thorne Street has kept much of its original character, alongside wonderful modern updates. The kitchen and baths have been updated with period-appropriate finishes, there are newer wood-like floors throughout, dual-pane windows, plus system upgrades like copper plumbing, tankless water heater and newer waste lines. Each room gets wonderful natural light, and both the living room and the primary bedroom open onto an expansive deck. The back yard is completely fenced and gated, and is a private place to enjoy dining al fresco, entertaining, and gardening. There is a finished two-car garage, plus separate studio, perfect for a home office, artist's retreat and more. Ideally located near the 110 (and yet far away enough to enjoy peace and quiet), and blocks from the Metro Gold Line station and all the shops and restaurants on Figueroa and York. This is Highland Park living at its finest!
